I am interested in journaling to try to capture those moments that are significant that I miss with my camera (I am a wildlife photographer). Sometimes there are moments that can not be recorded as a photo or film due to poor conditions of one kind or another. Also sometimes I may hear a story of something that has happened near where I live and I missed seeing it but some how it stayed in my awareness so I would like to be able to draw and paint it along with telling the story.
As Melissa says you have to leave enough room for the wings of the bird--Here I was using a fixed 500mm lens which did not allow me enough room in the photo to have been feet and tips of wings. I realize I needed a shorter lens when photographing birds from my car along the road.
